An illegitimate son inherits his father’s dream and a family he may never belong to…

The new alliance between Bola and Adana is fueled by revenge and greed.  Bola blackmails Folake with her husband’s life in return for the huge Soludo fortune which Shy has stashed away.  The Abayomi clan is dealt a devastating blow when a major oil spill occurs on their new offshore oil field and against all expectations, their relief comes from a proposal by Bola. But Jacob (played by Hlomla Dandala) and Folake (played by Moky Makura) have to face the authorities and world press, and fight to save the reputation of their family and the empire left to them by their father.

One man’s dream to build an African Empire is filled with dramatic twists and turns. Idealists dreaming to break free from their colonial and apartheid legacy collide with the lure of money, power, corruption and beautiful women.  That is the explosive cocktail that makes Jacob’s Cross a successful series.

    I missed the start of Jacob’s Cross, series 6. Can you tell me the date when the re-run will start? Many thanks!

    FYI – I love African history documentaries, am now addicted to Scandal and Tinsel and hope Isidingo will soon be back on track. Thanks again.

    Please can tell me when the DVDs for the series of Jacob’s Cross, Tinsel and Scandal will be released . I will like to have them for friends.

  31. Natalie.Tandoh says:

    Dear Vivian,
    Thank you for your comment. As Tinsel and Scandal are ongoing soap dramas, it is unlikely that the episodes will be released on DVD. As for Jacob’s Cross, we do not have any information about a DVD at the moment, but as soon as we hear about this we will let you know.

    Please how can I follow up again as I have missed since March 2012?Thanks.

  35. Paul says:

    I am impressed by the standard displayed and the articulation to expose shady deals of oil and gas business in Africa by the developed countries while using Africans against each other.
    I love Jacob and Adiele. Folake and Chichi. Bola is just a typical greedy, power hungry and deadly Nigerian crook turned millionaire overnight. Lucky his father was rich, if not he would have been diabolic to get rich. Zenale, you are indeed a pretty woman but remember divorce is not a solution to marital stress but understanding and making sure both parties are not mad at the same time.
    Expecting the September edition.

  36. Bobby says:

    When are they going to have a Jacob’s Cross marathon? Some Season 1 episodes aired today ( 4/28/2013 ) but I missed them. It would be so cool to see seasons 1 – 6 uninterrupted.

  50. ANDRE says:

    First i would say, i absolutely love Jacob’s Cross. when are we likely to get the Africa Channel on FreeView in the UK or at least in London. there is a whole viewer community missing out on your great programs, especially Jacob’s Cross. above all a great viewership potential the Africa channel can tap into. looking forward to seeing the channel on Freeview. albeit a limited service for staters
